A little postscript about The New York Times and Iran: It appears that in spite of the growing protests, the paper of record remains intent on providing tourist money to the oppressive state as well as reaping their own profit from selling tours to Iran:

The company is selling nine different 13-day tours of Iran in 2018. Individual tickets for the program, “Tales from Persia,” cost $7,895. The weighty price tag doesn’t include your flights to and from the Islamic Republic, but it does buy you the companionship of a handful of Times “experts” to accompany you on the trip, in addition to the state-approved domestic tour guide.

The trip itinerary includes two days in Isfahan, which is currently a focal point of the anti-regime protests that have left at least 21 people dead.

According to the report, the Grey Lady is closely monitoring the situation unfolding in Iran through their security contacts in the region.
